About this Cook
I learned to cook everything from scratch when I lived in Africa. Since I had to walk to the market get only what I could carry home. To make a simple meal like Tacos might take 3 or 4 hours starting with making the tortillas. Now I'm am super, super busy professional and new wife. I love to cook in a timeless vaccuum, but learning to make quick meals that taste good hasn't been easy.
My favorite things to cook
I also love fresh fish with shore lunch...mmmm...
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother used to make nests for our Easter eggs out of English muffins topped with a ring of pineapple and some coconut died with yellow food coloring. They are delicious and I hope to make them for my kids one day.
My cooking triumphs
I'm a novice sushi roller, and I'm happy to have a great husband to sample my creations.
My cooking tragedies
Everything I try to make in the slow cooker so far is a tragedy, including pulled pork which was also soupy. I'm thinking the crock pot is broken!

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes
Does burn if you use a baking sheet, so a casserole dish might be better.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken
Chicken was a little dry with this cooking method, but otherwise very easy and very good!
